Birds - Cinnamon Teal
Class:Aves Order:Anseriformes Family:Anatidae Genus:Anas


Cinnamon Teal, Anas cyanoptera. The Cinnamon Teal is a dabbling duck, meaning it feeds at the surface of the water instead of diving for food. These are found in and near the water. They are a great example of sexual dichromatism, as the male is a gorgeous reddish brown, but the females are more dull and brown in color. Cinnamon Teal photographed by Nick Varvel and John McConnell.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
